Trilipiderm Broad Spectrum SPF 30

UPDATE  3/1/2016

Although our winter was extremely and unusually mild, my hands still dried out – I think the dryness indoors from having the heat on, really is almost as bad as outdoor weather conditions as far as being drying.  I kept my tube of trilipiderm in my bag, and put it on twice a day – or more at times.  I found it kept my hands from looking so dry and my skin is softer.  I started putting it on my feet – which are a disaster most winters.  I also use it on my elbows, as they tend to be dry also.  Funny, I never thought a lot about them before, but once I realized how well it worked on my hands, I started using it on my elbows and feet.   It makes me feel better about switching to short sleeves and sandals soon.   I love how it feels once it is absorbed by my skin, and how it leaves my skin feeling.  It has no noticeable aroma, and that is a plus in my book.     My tube of trilipiderm is almost empty, but I plan on stocking up.  I swim in the ocean, which can be very drying, so this will come in handy after a day at the beach also.

My thanks to trilipiderm for providing this sample.

Every winter my hands start to resemble an alligator’s skin.  They get dry and look horrible. No offense to alligators, but I prefer a more human look.  I use lotions and oils, some that help for a bit, but none really make much of a difference.  Now that winter is on the way again,  I was dreading what it does to my skin, and my hands in particular.

Last week, I received a sample of trilipiderm® Broad Spectrum SPF 30 with Vitamins D moisture retention cream for review purposes.  While I am not always as cautious as I should be about using sunscreen, since I don’t burn, I appreciate that it is important to skin care, and more importantly the prevention of skin cancers.  I immediately opened it, and had to smell it – I was a bit concerned it would have a strong aroma, or smell ‘mediciney’.  I honestly didn’t find it had any scent at all.  I rubbed a little on my hands, and at first thought it had a thick, heavy feel to it.  Within seconds, that feeling was gone, and my hands did feel a bit smoother and softer.  A few hours later, I noticed that my hands didn’t have a dry look, nor did they feel rough.  I won’t say my hands were soft and smooth as a new born babies bottom, but it was a noticeable improvement  after only one use.  I’m going to hold off on using it daily, until I am going to be out in cold, windy, wet weather more.  Right now we are having a mini-warm spell in Northern New England.  Sure to change soon though.

I received the 3 oz tube of trilipiderm Broad Spectrum SPF 30 with Vitamin D.  It is also available in an 8 oz pump.  The tube is great to throw in a bag and take with you, while the 8oz pump is probably better suited for keeping at home.  The company also has other moisturizing creams.  All products are made in the United States.
